Bees: A Honeyed History
by Piotr Socha; text by Wojciech Grajkowski
Curriculum Collection, Easy Books, 2nd floor
Don’t let the stunned bee expressions mislead; this oversized picture book provides scientifically sound descriptions of beehavior supported by engaging scientific illustration in Socha’s whimsical style. Two-page spreads each illustrate an aspect of humans’ relationship with bees, from Apis’ appearance in cave paintings in Southern Spain, to beekeeping, to the transportation of bees by truck to California almond groves.
If this title delights, then Katie Scott’s scientific illustrations in Botanicum and Animalium are also sure to please.
